Not to mention, similar to regular cigarettes, Juul is super addictive. In fact, experts say you could get hooked in just a week due to the amount of nicotine in each pod. “The younger you are, the more quickly you get addicted,” Dr. Winickoff said. “It changes your brain to be nicotine-hungry by upping the regulation of receptors in the reward center of the brain. There’s good evidence that nicotine addiction itself increases, addiction to other substances.” Which means it’ll be even harder to quit.
So major props to Hadid for finally pulling the plug and going smoke-free. And, maybe this is the right time for you to quit too. The nationwide smoking ban is perhaps a good opportunity to smoke lesser, and finally quit!
